Bird of Paradise flower

About five years ago I bought five plants expecting them to thrive since they seem to survive in the most neglected gardens. They haven’t grown well, I think at least one is not much bigger than when I planted it but at last there is a flower on one and another flower spike forming. I presume this one isn’t fully opened yet.

Also flowering at the moment is a self seeded Sunflower. I thought they all had black centres but apparently not.

Another flowering at the moment is a lovely little Bottlebrush, I find the buds fascinating.

Before we went to Puppy School today I was comfortable knowing that no-one ever failed because Fergus is usually too excited to concentrate but he surprised me by showing he could sit, drop, stay, come and run through a tunnel, no bother!  I didn’t bother to demonstrate he knows what “do a pee” means. 🙂
